We just needed somewhere to stay the night before heading to the airport early in the morning. Jacobs was the perfect choice, not to expensive, clean, friendly and they sorted out our transport to the airport. Would highly recommend and would stay again.

The Jacobs Inn Hostel is located 100 ft. from the #747 bus stop, direct from the airport, and 100 yds. from the train station. Walking distance to the Christ Church Cathedral, St. Patrick's Cathedral, and Trinity College. Typical breakfast, good security, and a lift! Friendly staff and maid service. Quiet and clean. Try it!

it is ok. Not too far from the cultural center of Dublin (within a 5-10 minute walk across the river), but located in a quiet area on the opposite side of the River Liffy. I would definitely stay here again.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in during my travels across Europe. The staff were super friendly and helpful with directions on how to catch a bus to the airport, how to book a trip to see other parts of Ireland, and with suggesting things to do and sights to see while in Dublin. The facilities were clean and... More

The Hostel was in a fantastic location, you can walk to most important places to visit. They had a free walking tour that was amazing. The Hostel is fairly new so everything is in very condition, very clean as well. Staff is friendly and happy to help. Free wifi and free breakfast is something highly appreciated.

Short walking distance to Croke park and central town. Really easy to get to from Dublin Airport. The coach drops you off two minutes walk form the bus stop. Clean beds and rooms and very friendly staff.
